we did it.
can't seem to change the size in the embedding section but it's okay, you can watch it straight on youtube instead. would not recommend watching on data. 11 minutes of...strangeness. i'm pretty conflucted on this because i'm not completely satisfied with the output, but i'm proud of how much i did to salvage it to make it something i could be proud of.
Walter is a lonely guy. He wakes up, goes to work, says hello to Bill, hides in the store room until the day is over and then he goes back to an empty home and an empty life. Little did he know that an encounter with a stranger would change his life forever, filling in the hole that has been open for well too long.
okay, the synopsis can be improved but i've had enough of writing hahaha nonetheless i think the things i'm most proud of are the colour grading and the audio. people liked the grading, which naturally made me feel good. the audio isn't great, but it was a lot worse before i ran it through audition and premiere pro's audio software. if you saw the progress, you'd be amazed too. i'm just disappointed that it (the story, not my film. more than one person comes up with a cut for each story.) didn't get chosen for the end-of-sem show screening, but it's whatever. i'm happy with what has come out, which is a lot better than i thought it would.
behind the scenes, there were so many issues, from time to budget to my lack of control as the DOP (that reminds me, i have to do budget claims!) to audio to camera issues to location issues to um...other things that shan't be mentioned, but we pushed through. the baby is here.
now time to prep for the projects i've been planning to do over this break. that is, if people stop overworking me and give me a break i've waited for since week 2 of uni. also...study for forensics.
